It is with much regret that the Friend’s of How Hill have made the difficult decision to cancel the Craft Fair tomorrow 25th October. With the exceptionally large amounts of rainfall both the access roads and the parking areas are compromised. We will let you know as soon as it can be re-arranged.


The long awaited How Hill Craft Fair will return after a 3 year absence and will be held on Wednesday 25th October from 11 am to 4 pm.  Entry £3, children free.  Refreshments including homemade cakes available throughout.  A range of local craft stalls and demonstrations together with the opportunity to walk around the gardens.  Parking free.

Latest Visitor Information


May 2023

Good news.  The Secret Gardens are now open again. The garden team have now managed to repair the damage and replace the donation box with a sturdier version which will hopefully keep the light fingered at bay.  We have been lucky enough to have received some donations to go part way to cover the costs involved and thank you all for your support.


April 2023

Unfortunately we have had to close our gardens for the foreseeable future due to ongoing vandalism and the theft of our donation box.  We are very sorry for any inconvenience caused and will get them open again as soon as we can.

The Car Park  is open as are the toilets during the day time (until the end of October). Our take away refreshments will be open again the last week in May and then weekends only until the school summer holidays.

We made a film! Watch it here.

June 13, 2019

Well actually, the community engagement team from the Water, Mills and Marshes (WM&M) project offered to make a film for us and we were only too pleased to take them up on their offer.

WM&M’s Terry and his drone spent two days in May filming 7 and 8 year olds from Acle St Edmund C of E Primary School as they enjoyed an absolutely cracking visit to How Hill.

The unique aerial footage combined with hearing the children talk about their experiences convey how special How Hill is much more effectively than any written words ever could… so watch the film here.
